Out in the Bay - Gay Radio from San Francisco    

Queer histories, herstories, personalities and issues are explored with humor, insight, and sensitivity each week on Out in the Bay.  We've been called “the gay Fresh Air” and even "the gay Tavis Smiley." We’ve interviewed such celebrities as film directors Ang Lee and John Waters, comedians Margaret Cho and Marga Gomez, singers Leslie Gore and Michael Feinstein,  actors, authors and more.  We’ve also featured historians, scholars, and activists -- including Phyllis Lyon and the late Del Martin -- with compelling stories about the reality of LGBT life.

Powerful Memoir: "Riding Fury Home"

Chana Wilson and her mother, Gloria

Chana

Wilson grew up in the 1950s with a suicidal mother. She learned in adulthood that her mother had been a closeted lesbian given psychiatric treatments - including electroshock - to “cure” her. Mother and daughter developed a deep bond when both came out as lesbians in the women’s and gay liberation movements of the late 1960s and ’70s. There's much more to this touching, fascinating story in "Riding Fury Home," Chana’s memoir. Marilyn Pittman hosts.  Thursday, February 27, 2014

Sunset over Provincetown Harbor

How did Provincetown, Massachusetts, get to be so "gay, gay, gay," as the Provincetown Business Guild puts it? Let the locals fill you in. 7pm Thursday, hear from, among others, the lounge pianist who's been there 50 years, The Fabulous Dyketones founder, the activist-artist who made a dress out of tampon applicators and the town clerk who married 200 couples in one day. You'll hear about Portuguese sailors and innkeepers, fine art history, sand-filled cars, mass same-sex weddings in 2004, the dunes, "the dick dock" and more on this documentary-style romp with Out in the Bay host Eric Jansen through what is probably the gayest little city in the world - at least per capita.!(Re-airs 7pm Thursday Feb. 20, 2014. First aired Sept. 19, 2013; . Edited by Nora Elmeligy (mostly) and Eric Jansen from interviews Eric conducted onsite in June 2013.)
